If you want a case with fantastic airflow characteristics, good build quality and lots of options for both air and water cooling, my suggestion would be to look at the Fractal Design Define S II.

It's pretty much the same case as the Define R6, but much more geared towards water cooling configurations with most of the drive bays on the backside of the motherboard tray. No interference with airflow at all aside from the components themselves, tempered glass, lots of cable management features.

It's also incredibly easy to mod. Supports 140mm fans in all seven fan locations.

The InWin 305 will not support the H115i extreme, as that is a dual 140mm fan radiator (280mm) and that InWin case ONLY supports 120mm fans in all of the fan locations. I don't see that case in stock at any major retailer anyhow unless you are outside the US.

I also doubt very much whether that case, even if it DID support 140mm width fans, would have very good airflow for the use of a high volume AIO cooler like that because there is very restricted airflow intake on the front of that case and no major vents for intake elsewhere on it. Certainly it could work, as it's designed, somewhat at least, for the use of water cooling, but it's a poor design IMO.

If performance cooling is a desired feature you probably want a case without major restrictions even if you are not planning to utilize a front mounted radiator. If you want a "shiny" case, I'd suggest maybe looking at the Corsair Crystal models.
